Innovating in ideas, management, processes, products and relationships with the various stakeholders is a fact proved again by the ranking “As Campeãs da Inovoção” (The Champions of Innovation), organized by Revista Amanhã in partnership with the specialized consulting Edusys and technical support from Fundação Cabral (Cabral Foundation).
In the ranking that shows the 50 most innovative companies in southern Brazil in 2012, ZEN occupies the 27th place. According to the president of ZEN, Gilberto Heinzelmann, the classification confirms the growing company's innovative attitude and motivation to move forward. "We are investing to achieve concrete results. But of course, it all starts with building a creative environment that inspires innovative attitude”, said the president. “In this, we are making progress”.
The latest fruit of innovative attitude and investments of ZEN is the development of a new product that will soon be launched in the market. It is the pulley Overrunig Alternator Decoupler (OAD) with concept patented by the company. The pulley, which will receive the trade name Z-VIB, is in final testing and approval.
The technical advantages of OAD pulley ZEN are considerable. Thanks to innovative solutions, the product is more durable, robust, reliable, and also provides greater comfort in life on board, since it allows smoother running engine. "The vehicle tests proved the advantages of the new concept of the pulley, which showed high performance in reducing the vibration of the belt”, notes the analyst of Research & Development, Alvaro Corner Michelotti.
Aiming to improve the system of Management of Intellectual Property (patents), ZEN acquired a license to use the Orbit, a system used by large corporations such as Embraer, WEG, among others. The system, with simple operation, allows the search and analysis of advanced information of patents published by 96 international authorities.
